Reviving an ooold thread... Has anyone done a conversion to red backlighting on their 2014-current Mazda 6 dash and IC (including the HVAC/infotainment lighting, too)? I'm dying to do this, but have no idea how or what parts to get. Any insights would be very welcome! I drive a 2014 Mazda 6 Touring (Liquid Silver Metallic).
